Everton winger Ademola Lookman will spend the rest of the 2017/18 season with RB Leipzig after sealing a loan move to the high-flying Bundesliga club.
Lookman joined the Blues 12 months ago from League One Charlton Athletic and scored on his debut in a 4-0 Goodison Park victory over Manchester City.
The England Under-21 international joins a Leipzig team sitting fifth in the league, one point outside the top four and a Champions League qualification spot.
Lookman has made 24 appearances for the Toffees in all competitions. He has played 16 times this season and scored two goals – both coming in the 3-0 Europa League victory in Cyprus against Apollon Limassol on 7 December.
The 20-year-old could make his Leipzig bow on Saturday, when last season’s Bundesliga runners-up visit seventh-placed Borussia Monchengladbach.
The future of Ademola Lookman could be decided this week as the Everton hierarchy hold talks with the talented winger.
The Mirror reports that new Everton boss Marco Silva will sit down with Lookman in the coming days to lay out his plans for the future.
Silva and director of football Marcel Brands are actively looking to lower the wage bill this summer but Lookman is not among those they are looking to sell. In fact, Lookman is just to sort of exciting youngster Silva and Brands want to build their new-look team around.
